Date nights are the perfect time to add some much-needed energy back into a stale relationship. Read more to discover ten unique date night ideas worth trying when you want to impress your partner again.

Make date night extra exciting by visiting a charity or thrift store to put together each other’s outfits. However, be mindful of those who shop at thrift stores for need and do not buy the entire store because you can.

Jigsaw puzzles are surprisingly great conversation starters, so grab the wine and a puzzle to get talking. This puzzle building is a great bonding exercise for partners who do not have much time together in the week. 

Try Tie-Dyeing


Summer is almost here, and the tie-dye trend doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon. Buy a tie-dye kit at a craft store, set up everything outside, and enjoy the day creating something new with your partner.

Pick a cause that you and your partner are both passionate about, and go, volunteer where they need it. This may be a bonding experience for both of you, and if not, at least you did something helpful with your time.

If you do not have your own, rent a pair of bicycles to explore some of your local treasures together. You can also go on a bicycle tour that is already mapped out for you if your city offers those as an option.
